During a segment on Monday night’s O’Reilly Factor, one of his producers confronted Massachusetts State Representative Eugene O’Flaherty (D-Chelsea), demanding an answer to why he was blocking passage of Jessica’s Law in the Commonwealth. Massachusetts is one of eight remaining states that have successfully resisted the get-tough measure.
For those of you who don’t know, according to Wikipedia “Jessica’s Law was named after Jessica Lunsford, a young Florida girl who was raped and murdered in February 2005 by John Covey, a previously convicted sex offender. Public outrage over this case spurred Florida officials to introduce this legislation. Among the key provisions of the law are a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years in prison and lifetime electronic monitoring of adults convicted of lewd or lascivious acts against a victim less than 12 years old. In Florida, sexual battery or rape of a child less than twelve years old is a capital felony, punishable only by death or life imprisonment with no chance of parole.”
As far as I’m concerned, we should all spare the taxpayers the cost of incarcerating repeat sexual predators and a rather speedy execution is in order. But that’s another story.
O’Reilly never got his answer from the Massachusetts Legislature Judiciary Committee chair. Unless he’s willing to go where some have little guts to go, he won’t get that answer. So, let me give it a shot….
If some sweaty, pot-bellied gym teacher raped a teenaged girl, the only things missing from the collective community outrage would be the torches and pitchforks. The affected community would demand this man get put away for life, hopefully to receive prison justice once in the pokey. But for some reason, whenever we hear stories of men raping and killing little boys, men who we later find out did this before, there is outrage… to a point, minus the word associated with the perpetrator we NEVER hear: gay.
Now while I hear the knees jerking in unison, let me state what should be the obvious. There are good people and bad people. There are good men and bad men; good women and bad women; good black people and bad black people. There are good and bad in every demographic. Is there some reason that gays are seemingly excluded from that inevitability?
Of course. Seeing how many gay people consider themselves an oppressed group one notch below blacks, there’s no way they could be placed in an oppressor (or predator) class. That is, if you disregard human nature.
The gay lobby in Massachusetts is extremely powerful and feared by state politicians. Almost every prominent Democrat in the Commonwealth has been supported and/or had his or her election contributed to by them. To cross the gay lobby is a bad thing.
So it’s no wonder that Massachusetts’s liberals have denied the people of the state the opportunity to vote on gay marriage, a vote that polls repeatedly show would result in upholding the ban.
In an effort to “prevent suicide in the gay and lesbian community”, Massachusetts liberals created a commission costing state taxpayers $250,000 a year. The legislature later funded the creation of a second Gay and Lesbian Youth Commission with eight times the original budget. This “super commission” has the power to implement policy that even the governor would have a tough time overriding.
One example of that power was the publishing and distribution of “The Little Black Book: Queer in the 21st Century”, which was handed out to middle and high schoolers during a Saturday “tolerance” seminar at a suburban Boston public high school. With power like that, it’s no wonder that some gays, looking out for their own, would pressure politicians to block Jessica’s Law because it might put a good number of gays in prison for a very long time, and possibly reduce the lobby’s preferred victim status.
The media is complicit in this as well.
When reporting on a rape of a young girl by a man, it is automatically assumed we’re talking about a heterosexual pervert, and the outrage is loud and clear. However, when we hear reports of a man who rapes little boys (and we come to find out he’s done this in the past), the word “gay” is never uttered, thus the outrage is muted.
Most recently, we have the story of Level 3 sex offender Corey Deen Saunders. Almost every physiologist who testified at his release hearing warned he would most probably molest again. But many Massachusetts judges, who’ve received endorsements and support from the gay lobby, consistently protect repeat offenders from harsh sentences. Representative Eugene O’Flaherty opposes Jessica’s Law as he claims it would tie the hands of judges with mandatory sentencing rules.
Maybe O’Flaherty and some of those judges need to know what it’s like to be bound.
Shortly after his release, Saunders was arrested for fondling and performing oral sex on a six-year-old boy in a public library. He is awaiting trial, again. Had Jessica’s Law been in place in Massachusetts, that little boy would have been spared.
But you’re only as good as the government you can buy, and the Massachusetts Legislature has been bought and paid for by the gay and lesbian lobby. So Bill O’Reilly, that’s the reason Massachusetts will never see Jessica’s Law implemented. That’s the reason why more children will be raped, and unfortunately, murdered by heterosexual and gay predators alike.
